island or seattle, washington. they lived right next to seattle this other. he was always looking for the next thing. he moved from kansas to california, several time to seattle to why. so she came along with the family but she graduated an excellent public school in seattle. she was the only child. her name is stanley ann. i can take a story some other time. so she's there as a freshman. it's been there since 1959. also an undergraduate, even though much older, but that they do sign up for beginning russian class. this was during in schools all over this story considered the most important thing the public schools could do to prepare for the cold war and the race for the russians. they both ended up in a russian class and that's where they began. >> host: how long did they know each other before they got married? >> guest: they knew each other for five runs. while they've added september, they got married in february. she got pregnant before that. everything about it but us, you know, it was not a normal co
would object but usually when i was giving a talk in seattle they would say something to the point of progressive activists of course aarsele to the ghazaliya. it's the politicians that are dividing the real conversation today they are the real pros finance people. okay. really? let's look. president barack obama, the number one progressive politicians in america jesus in his inaugural address january 24, 2009 will restore science to its rightful place. that is a lofty goal for a politician. how did he do it? .. >> it lifted the ban, the quote-unquote ban, on federal funding. so today as of the time i put this talk together, about a pont ago, there were 178 embryonic stem cell lines available for federal funding, but there are 760 lines available globally. so he increased it from about 21 lines to 178 lines. most notably, they must be derived, these embryonic stem cells must be derived from leftover invitro fertilization embryos, and permission is required from apartments. that has -- from parents. that has the effect of really limiting the number of embryonic stem cells that you c
, the northwest corridor for us is linking between some pretty rural areas, but between seattle, vancouver, seattle and portland, oregon, and cha-ching oregon, we have some major business markets and the opportunity for travelers who are tourists to enjoy our rail. for us, it wasn't going to work to start from scratch. immediately institute a high speed rail line. we have too many communities linking to that west coast corridor that wanted to enjoy the benefits of rail, and wanted us as a state to his country being and putting our own state dollars into it, they wanted to see the benefits in that incremental fashion. so for us i think washington state will always be a higher speed or at least in the next 20 to 30 years, higher speed passenger rail program, but it works for us and it works for our businesses and our major communities that it links. also i'd like to say that as we work closely with burlington northern santa fe on this notion of sharing the corridor, it's a decision that we made, burlington northern santa fe has bought into it, and the notion for us in the amount of increment
magnuson's house in seattle reminisce about their days together, and some of those stories i can share on the floor and some i couldn't. but they were longtime friends. and the one story that is written about in warren magnuson's biography by shelby scates is a story about how the two of them, both appropriators, when mount saint helen's grew up, senator magnuson went to senator inouye and said, we need about a billion dollars for the cleanup of mount saint helen's. if you can manly in 198 -- imagine in 1980 what a tremendous amount of money that was. senator inouye's response was, senator magnuson, we have volcanos blowing up all the time in hawaii and we never get a dime. and senator magnuson's response was, just wait, it will be your turn soon. so these are two individuals that forged a relationship, and along with jackson, were some of the big giants of our day in the united states senate. and we certainly in the state of washington benefited greatly from senator inouye's incredible help and support. i know that he traveled to our state many times at my request and participated in
-2006 there was a young boy, native american in the state of washington out near seattle, and he was playing basketball, and he fell down, and he hit his lip on the pedestal of the basketball hoop. and he was afflicted with the flesh-eating bacteria. and if you go online, you can either google her name or his name, it's jake finkbonner. they have pictures of him when he was in the throes of this malady. so jake finkbonner had survived. his surgeons were absolutely miraculous in the way they were able to graph the skin to cover what had been con consumed by the bacteria. and they attribute his survival, his cure, to her intersession. so that was verified through the vatican. they have a battery of scientists to verify that these are supernormal, paranormal, whatever, occurrences that can only come from above, and they verified that. and then the process is still somewhat slow. that was in '05 or '06 when he had that malady. and then they decided to canonize her last year. i think it was in december of 2011. and they put it forward on october 21, 2012 was the day of her canonization. so an authorized aut
for the wall street journal, news day, and up until six months ago i was managing a print shop in seattle, selling business cards to microsoft employees. so i it was kind of a shock to the system, and the term "dark horse" gets used quite a bit in regards to my chances here. but we -- it was an incredible shift towards the positive. i mean, nice to have these dramatic shifts for the better in your life. normally they're -- when something this big happens it's usually for the negative but this time it's very much for the positive. so we were quite pleased. >> what is brownsville like today? >> my experience with it when i went back, it was like so much -- >> saw family there? >> my father still lives there and my grandmother. i made the trip to sort of get the blessings, both literally and figuratively, and it was different. the house we grew up in is no longer there. it's been sold two or three times. graham's house is still intact. still as creepy as ever. and there's a sense of peace there anymore. it's like she is very much living in her late stages of life, and much more calm as a hum
for yard ne years at chief of police in seattle, washington, where he left crime at it lowest in 40 years. [applause] >> well, good morning, and thank you very much for being here, and this is the wonderful opportunity for me to associate, again, on this monitoring the future report with dr. volkow. and i thank her and actually the great staff that supports dr. johnson and the work that he has done. and the assistant secretary of health, dr. koh, could not be a stronger partner on these health issue, and his words about the health of young people and the responsibility we have as adults for them, i think, are particularly important. and, chris, i'm looking forward to hearing from you. and it's always a great pleasure to be with dr. johnson who has given us the information that helps so much in not only making policy, but also the information that's needed to improve the nation's health and particularly the health of young people. so there are a couple important things i think that i really took from this report, but to put it a little bit into context, remember that this is that snapshot

[applause] >> well, good morning and thank you very much for being here. this is a wonderful opportunity for me to associate again the future report with dr. walkoff and the staff that supports dr. johnson in the work he has done. the assistant secretary of health, dr. koh could not be a stronger partner on these issues in his words about the health of young people and responsibility we have as adults they think are particularly important. i'm looking forward to hearing from you and it's always a great pleasure to be with dr. johnson who has given us the information that helps so much and not only making policy, but also the information needed to improve the nation's health, particularly the health of young people. so there's a couple of important things that i really took from this report. but to put it a little bit into context, remembering this is the snapshot of the prior year and it's also helpful to think about where
a where you change with. today's stephen breyer said after the court decided the seattle and louisville anti-segregation cases overturned those. he said it is not a women want this so if you have quickly so much. and that was even before citizens united, which i think is the defining case so far of the roberts court. but remember, the conservatives of the 60s, 70s, moderate republicans. the core idea of conservatism at the supreme court was judicial restraint. the idea that courts should, if at all possible, do for to the elected branches of government. should not overturn laws lately. the liberals were always trying to overturn laws and he was potter stewart lewis powell and sandra day o'connor preaching judicial constraint. citizens united is the case were just a few years earlier, george w. bush had signed the mccain-feingold law. in two years earlier -- within two, four years earlier the supreme court had affirmed the constitutionality of the mccain-feingold law. but in a story i tell at greater length in the "the oath," the conservative majority converted a relatively minor dispute
